I am trying to setup my jetdirect ex3 to print using lpd. I have
tcp/ip up and running on my nt server 4.0 w/ sp 3. I have installed tcp print services on the server. I "route added" the default ip address of the ex 3 to the server routing table.
I do a "route print" and the address 192.0.0.192 is shown.
The dlc protocal works fine with the ex3. I followed the instructions from HP fax-back help. But when I ping 192.0.0.192 from the server the ping times out. The server
does have (2) ip addresses. One for the internal network,
 and one from the ISP for access to the internet.I "route added" the 192.0.0.192 to the internal ip address. Any suggestions? Thanking you in advance

- You 'd better change the default ex3 ip address to one address on your subnet.

- An other solution would be to add the ip address 192.0.0.193 to your server in the Network control panel applet, protocol, TCP/ip, properties, Advanced. (Note the 193)
You may have to reboot before ping works

You mention the "default" address of the jet direct card.  I presume 192.0.0.192 is the address of the jet direct card.

Try running tracert from the NT server to 192.0.0.192 and see where the packet goes.  It may not be pointed in the right direction.  Or, it may be going in the right direction, but being ignored by the jet direct card.  Either case will tell a story.

It would useful to know what IP addresses you are using on the NT server and your internal network.  That way I can give you the proper IP command to make this work.

Did you add the Jetdirect printer port to NT?
I think it's in HP Jetadmin for NT (free)

You can change the setup of the jetdirect box/card, ans the ip-adres.
